by at . Comments

The director of Twilight, Catherine Hardwicke, has her sights set on a new young adult novel to turn into the next blockbuster, "Maximum Ride," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The five-volume novel series focuses on a group of six teenagers, known as the Flock, who are genetically alterted to be part human and part bird.  When they learn to fly, they escape the lab where they were altered and are being chased by a pack of creatured, the Erasers, that are half human and half wolf.

Sounds like a perfect premise for a movie to us!  Don Payne, who recently wrote the horrible Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer is writing the screen play.  Well that doesn't make us happy.
